A kind heart, a gentle soul, she would never hurt a soul on purpose, always ready to lend a helping hand or to help however she could. We had alot of good times & good memories will always remember her fondly. Rest in peace old friend.

I taught with Amaire for many years at Brown County High School. I always admired her strength, intelligence, and huge heart she had for others. I am so saddened by her passing and will miss her.

I wanted to tell you that you were at one time the only person who knew something wasn't rite. You saved me that day in the hallway at the junior high. I never went back to an abusive home. Even invited me into your home and helped me along the way. Thank you more than you even know. Much love to your family and friends.

Amaire was much loved by her brother's only son Vincent Boose, with whom she spent much time on the farm and whom she guided for ten years and more in 4H projects, and many other independent projects in life. Thank you for sharing your love of animals with Vincent. You will always be remembered with love.
